Chapter Seven Share Tops Preferred Sale
Not long after parent company Preferred Equine Marketing sold a share in Walner for $750,000 as the sale topper at the Harrisburg Mixed Sale, a share in his sire Chapter Seven topped the Nov. 21 Preferred Equine Online Mixed Sale.
The share was sold by Preferred Equine Online as agent and purchased for $182,000 by France’s LeTrot president and prominent breeder/buyer Jean Pierre Barjon.
Among two lots that sold for $102,000 was the winner of last Saturday’s Open Handicap Pace at Saratoga, the New Zealand-bred speedster Alluneedisfaith N p,1:49.2-’22 ($555,844), who was consigned as agent for the Doug Overhiser and partners reduction sale. He was purchased by Gestion R. Zane Inc.
With breeding season fast approaching, stallion shares proved to be popular on the day. Two separate shares in Captaintreacherous, who led the Lexington Selected Yearling Sale in average at $154,429, brought prices of $102,000 and $100,000 and were purchased respectively by Joseph Parisi and the OK Corral.
Two more racehorses checked in with solid prices — Maximus Red A p, 1:51.3f-’22 ($236,978) was bought by Tomas Ceraso for $64,000 and the last hip to be offered, Meadowbranch Noble 1:53.1-’22 ($182,719), was haltered by Bigsexyca for $56,000.
Leading seller in the broodmare section of the sale was the Ohio-bred stakes producer Cruzin Tothe Dance. In foal to Downbytheseaside, she was purchased by Doug & Beth Yontz’s Anvil & Lace Farm for $37,000.
Overall, 26 lots were sold for a sale gross of $905,300 and average of $34,819. Horses not sold are still listed on the sale page, with “make offer” noted, and for many, an asking price.
Sale owner and manager David Reid said quality horses in current form continued to meet or exceed seller expectations at the online venue.
“Like with every sale, good horses coming in off impressive races are still commanding the best prices,” said Reid.
